We are Purple Turtle Co.
1 - The community.
Purple Turtle Co started from a simple vision, to build a community brand that creates real-world value both for our people and our planet, through free education, innovation and collabortive projects.
2 - Power to the people.
After countless conversations with passionate environmentalists, it had become obvious that in order for people to adopt more sustainable lifestyles, we first needed to educate society on the benefits of being more eco-concious. So we set out on a journey to create a hub that provides free educational content and a community whereby people can contribute thier own skills and ideas, or simply just consume the free value created by the community.
3 - The climate emergency.
For decades we have been living in an inefficient world where waste and unsustainable behaviours have grown out of control. Unsustainable human behaviour has led to a number of key environmental impacts such as deforestation, ocean plastic, pollution, biodiversity and gobal warming. These issues stem from a wider range of human behaviours including energy production, agriculture, population growth, waste management, urban development and much more. The problem is simply human behaviour.
4 - Our philosophy.
We have a simple 3 step strategy, educate, innovate and collaborate. Firstly we create and deliver free content to our community to educate society and drive change through human behaviour. Secondly, our research & development projects aim to develop new sustainable solutions for consumers and businesses. Finally, we aim to bring this all together through creating a place where people can work together to solve sustainability issues . The only way we can change things in the world is by empowering people to change behaviours and to engineer new solutions.
5 - Promote your project.
We are always on the hunt for people who are passionate about the environment. Whether it's organisaing a beach clean up, designing a new innovative product or creating a new educational article, if you have an idea that we can help come to life then let us know. Although we are only a small community, if we can fund it or facilitate it we will give you the resources and support you need to turn your ideas into a reality.
6 - Building a better world.
We hope that one day the Purple Turtle will be widely recognised in society as a community brand, built on trust and undepinned by strong enviornmental values. We intend to become the innovators of sustainability, creating a digital space for bringing people together and providing free education for all.
